We will plant trees in Mongolian workCamps Exchange`s camp and some other places.
This is the only season in Mongolia to plant trees. There are increasing activities by some organizations to plant trees but it takes a hundred or more years to be grown, so we should also join this movement by global power! Part of Greening Asia
Ger (Mongolian traditional tent) or summer house. Please bring sleeping bag. Volunteers will cook/clean by turn. Music player and some card and board games are available. Shower is available too. Bed and mattress will be provided.

Organized together with NICE (Never-ending International workCamps Exchange) and supported by Greening Asia fund since 2002. The forests problem is serious also in Mongolia. Before 1990, the forests are covered 10% of land, but 7% today. It’s caused by cutting trees without any controls, forest fire and global warming. Other side it takes a long time to grow trees in Mongolia and May and middle of October is the only seasons to plant trees in Mongolia.
Special skill for manual work not necessary, but still welcome. To like physical work and be flexible/ adaptable. Mongolian speakers are welcome!
Don’t worry about the weather and it will be around 15-20 degree hot. But still sometimes weather could be changed quite.
